The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 113

It’s broken lads, you’ll have to get the train.

Gin Gillette’s Train To Satanville from 1961 is a spooky rockabilly classic and frankly I’m surprised I’ve got to 113 rockabilly posts without featuring it. One for the compilation tape this one. And before you ask yes it does sound like that- crackly, with a $5 recording budget and a vinyl cutter that had as much subtlety as a knitting needle. It’s no worse for it either.

Train To Satanville

Hot isn’t it? I’m not complaining- I love it.

All Hallow’s Eve

Trick or treat? Neither, go away you pesky kids.

I’m not a big fan of Hallowe’en but it gives me the excuse to post this slightly disturbing picture from the USA in 1959 and this mix from Mr Weatherall from this time last year- an hours worth of spooky sounds and plenty of 50s and 60s rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly and psych, featuring amongst others Gin Gillette, Sparkle Moore and Ronnie Cook and the Gaylads (with Cramps’ cover Goo Goo Muck).
